Otis: Leading The Way In Hydraulic Elevators


As an industry leader, Otis Elevator Company offers the most advanced hydraulic systems to meet the needs of your low-rise project. Our E-Z Elevator Selection Process also makes it simple to choose your elevator from our full line of hydraulic systems.
E-Z Elevator Selection Process
STEP 1: Travel Height The elevator travel distance will help you select the hydraulic elevator for your project. Use the chart below to identify the most commonly selected Otis hydraulic elevators for your specific travel heights. Colors indicate recommended range of minimum and maximum travel height. STEP 3: Hoistway Requirements Additional hoistway space is required for heavier reinforcements to rails in seismic zones 2 or greater. Specific requirements can be determined by reviewing individual product pages in this guide. STEP 4: Machine/Control Room Requirements Hydraulic systems require a separate machine room at the bottom landing. Locate machine room adjacent to hoistway at the bottom landing or remotely. STEP 5: Car Design and Finishes Otis provides design and selection flexibility with car walls, ceiling, lighting, handrails, bumper rails and fixtures.

Colors indicate recommended range of minimum and maximum travel height.

STEP 2: Elevator Quantity and Size Determining factors include floor population, building use or type, as well as national and local codes. Stretcher access requirements by many states include a minimum load capacity of 3,500 lbs. and side-opening doors. For additional help in selecting proper size and number of elevators, refer to Architects Assistant on Otis.com or contact your local Otis representative.

General Requirements by Others Specific requirements for factors such as power, smoke detectors, entrance-wall construction and telephones are available in the General Requirements By Others section of the typical layout. For more information, consult your Otis representative. Standardized Installation Relying on Otis standardized installation process helps ensure elevator projects are completed on schedule and within budget. We also systematically visit project sites before installation to coordinate general contractor efforts with our own. This collaborative effort saves time and maintains the highest standards for safety and quality.

Complying with Code


All Otis hydraulic elevators comply with ASME/ANSIA17.1 and CAN/CSA-B44; Canada Barrier-free and ADA guidelines; and ICC/ANSI-A117.1. Although local codes may vary, Otis representatives can help ensure that specific requirements are met.

Two Car Buffers In-Ground Cylinder

Otis hydraulic systems feature sealed PVC protection to diminish potential damage by corrosion. The inground cylinders wall and bottom are surrounded by PVC and sealed at the cylinder head. Sealed PVC protection permits monitoring of the space between the cylinder wall and the PVC lining. Its evacuation port removes much of the unwanted liquids that may collect between the PVC and cylinder.
